Is this idea getting old? Well whatever. It's time to figure out where Days Go By fits on all of our personal lists. I'll go first.

1. Smash
2. Ignition
3. Ixnay On The Hombre
4. Americana
5. The Offspring
6. Days Go By
7. Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace
8. Conspiracy of One
9. Splinter

Days Go By impressed me enough to pass three other albums I love.

Your turn.

Hmm, seem to remember when RAFRAG came out it was going straight to the top three in most cases.

I'm pretty wary of album rankings after listening to it four times but...

1. Americana
2. Ignition
3. Smash
4. Ixnay on the Hombre
5. Days Go By
6. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
7. Splinter
8. Conspiracy of One
9. Self Titled

Realistically, this album could make the top three in time. It depends if the great songs outweigh the jarring the title track and two pop songs give me when they come on, and also how this record ages.

This was a toughy. 1, 2, 8 and 9 were easy, it was 3-7 that was a bitch to sort out. Still not sure if I like DGB more than Raf,Rag, then there was the problem of sorting through Americana, Splinter and their self-titled. Ultimately, I really like every album and it's hard to pick one over then other, especially since I've only heard the new one today. This is subject to change.

1. Ignition
2. Smash
3. Rise and Rall, Rage and Rage
4. Day's Go By
5. Splinter
6. Americana
7. The Offspring
8. Conspiracy of One
9. Ixnay on the Hombre

I don't like how low I have their self-titled, since it's a great album, but like I said, I like them all.

Basically the same for me, I'd switch S/T and Smash though.

If I didn't think about it Days Go By would get first place right now, just because it's new and so awesome. That'll probably wear off.

I just woke up.

The first number in bold is the average vote; I dunno what the number ranges are, though. At first I thought they were to show what placements people gave them, but Splinter's obviously been ranked lower than 6. Oh, unless he reversed the order - 1 for him is the lowest, but 1 for rankings was highest. I guess that's what it is.

Americana, 2nd explosion is more precious than Smash's one. Peak of their career, M, Ixnay is the lowest point of the peak.

Then, 4 albums, but the order is not necessarily stable here. Solid albums.

RFRG and S/T are chronically easy to dump, but still with some brilliant stuff.

DGB is fresh so I'm not sure how much it approaches Ixnay and how it will stand against the test of time, but I'm confident in it, it's very solid.

I made a new list (including the latest posts and a better description).

I gave the album points from 1 ("worst" album) to 9 (best album) based on your lists. Together our album ranking looks like that seen below. The numbers in bold are the average points (1 is lowest, 9 is highest). Then, 1-9 stands for the best placement the album has gotten, and the worst (1-7 means someone has ranked the album as the best, and no one has ranked it lower than the 7th best album).


1. Ixnay 6,96 1-9

2. Smash 6,80 1-8

3. Ignition 6,66 1-7

4. Americana 6,12 1-9

5. Days go by 5,64 1-9

RaF,RaG seems to be mid-way or near the bottom on most peoples' lists. What happened? It was like in the top three for almost everyone when it came out. It's still the #2 album to me, it was so solid. I have only given DGB a cursory listen so far, so I'll withhold my opinion until I actually buy it.

Ixnay, Days Go By, and Smash are pretty much tied for me. I love all three. The first three probably wouldn't move. Ignition is my favourite for sure. That's set in stone. CO1 was my very first Offspring album and I have a special attachment to it. However, I was introduced to them through Americana in 1999, so it was the first Offspring album I heard. Thus, my top 3 won't change.

dunno. i love rafrag. I wasnt hanging out much here when it came out mind and i was pretty surprised to see it so low down. its 3rd for me overall.

I agree too, i love RAFRAG, I love every song off that album. I also agree, i would say all nine of the Offspring's albums they put out are in my top 25 of all time.

Great question. I don't really know, but my best guess is that the second half doesn't really hold up anymore. I thought it (the second half) was pretty good at first, but I rarely ever listen to those songs, or any from RAFRAG. Half-Truism and YGGFK are the only ones I play on a regular basis.

I also suspect that the production plays a big role in that. In fact, an interesting thing I just noticed is that my bottom three albums are also my least favorite, sound-wise. With the exception of Splinter (one of my favorites, sound-wise).



remember though that somebody's 9th best offspring album may still be in their top 25 albums of all time - at least it probably is for me
So true. How's this for pathetic: Every Offspring album is probably in my top ten albums of all time. Green Day's Dookie, Michael Jackson's Thriller, and/or Lagwagon's Blaze are probably the only ones that could maybe knock one off. And that's maybe. :cool:

I'm fascinated by your ranges. If I were to do this, no song would be below 4, and I'd have plenty of 10s. I'd be interested in knowing which songs are at the bottom and top of your ranges for each album, if you have the time. :)

You know, I've seen your troll posts and decided not to get on your case about how ridiculous you sound. But after claiming that your ranking is the only ranking that could be possible for a "true" Offspring fan, I'd like to politely tell you to stop being an idiot.

You don't measure the "truth" of a fanbase, no matter how many ushaushaushauhsua's you throw at them. K? Stop being a jackass and people won't call you a troll. It ain't difficult.

I've been listening to The Offspring for over 16 years. I have seen them live three times and travelled internationally to check them out as an OPENER for another band. I have purchased every single one of their records the day it came out as of Americana. I have the Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace angel tattooed to my lower neck/upper back. I would rank Days Go By as my SECOND favourite album, but since you're the "tell all know all" speaker for the entire fan base, I guess that doesn't make me a hardcore fan.

I would rank Days Go By as my SECOND favourite album, but since you're the "tell all know all" speaker for the entire fan base, I guess that doesn't make me a hardcore fan.


Stop your fucking trolling. Your opinion does not equal fact.

I don't get why people keep acknowledging the fact that this guy is a troll, and yet keep responding to him as though his opinion matters at all.

Don't get me wrong. On a message board for all fans to post and discuss topics, he has a right to his opinion. However, he needs to treat it as such. As a "fan", I think the last thing he would want to do is stir up trouble in our community. Sometimes people don't understand when they are trolling. If that's the case, benefit of the doubt after we point it out. Perhaps a little talking to could prevent him from further trolling.

...

Or, I could be dead wrong. I just felt the need to get it out there. I've said what I needed to say; I'll sit this one out now. >_>

Nah fuck him. Stop giving it attention, not even a patronising head pat and a treat, and it will go away.

Or the mods could just prevent it from haushaushaushusa. WTF does that even mean anyway?

I've changed my order a little. It varies all the time. I love all 9 albums.
1. Smash
2. Ixnay On The Hombre
3. Ignition
4. Americana
5. Days Go By
6. The Offspring
7. Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace
8. Conspiracy of One
9. Splinter

I have been listening to DGB a lot, and now it's up to number 5. Ixnay also claimed number 2

From my favorite to least favorite: (I love all the albums, so coming in at #9 does NOT mean I hated it)

1. Ignition - I don't have to skip any songs on this. I can easily listen to this album over and over.
2. Ixnay on the Hombre - I love the variety of this album.
3. Days Go By - The only song I would ever think to skip may be Cruisin California. Very well done album.
4. Smash - Good punk album with lots of replay value.
5. Americana - Good mix of Rock and Pop. Not much punk here and have to skip 2 or 3 songs.
6. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace - Best opening for any of their albums in songs 1 thru 6, but has a very weak ending.
7. Splinter - The handful of really hard rocking songs on here make up for the poppy stuff and the shortness of the album.
8. Conspiracy of One - Fun album to listen to, but by the end I'm ready to put in something else.
9. Self Titled - I'll probably get some slack for this, but this album would be SO much better if the quality wasn't so bad. I love the lyrics in the songs, but the scratchy bad quality sound makes it hard to listen over and over. I would love to hear a modernized, re-recording of this album.

1. Americana - IMO, this album is the quintessential Offspring album. The variety of styles is awesome; punk, rock, progressive, funny shit! This was also the first album I ever purchased, so it will always be the best to me!
2. Ignition - It just fucking rocks straight through!
3. Smash - I don't think this albums needs any explanation. However, I do like Americana and Ignition a little bit more.

After this point, the albums are hard to rank. I love every album, but the first three are the standout albums. The Offspring is one of those rare bands that I can listen to every song!

4. Days Go By - Right now, this is where it falls. I can't stop listening to it; it definitely reminds me of Americana and Ixnay with the variety of songs so that's probably why it's this high up.
5. Splinter - I don't know why this album gets such a bad rep. It's fucking loud and fast and when it's not rocking, it's funny as hell!
6. Ixnay on the Hombre - This album is strange to me. The songs are all great and memorable, but it just doesn't flow as well to me. It feels like a greatest hits album or something like that. I know Dexter has said that a lot of the songs were from an earlier time in their career and just did not make it onto the first three albums, so that might be why it feels that way.
7. The Offspring - The raw emotions of the lyrics and rhythms on this album are awesome! As others have said, it's lower in my ranking because the quality of the recordings is not the best.
8. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace - This was a great comeback album after their break from recording, but there were definitely times when it didn't feel like The Offspring.
9. Conspiracy of One - This is a great album, don't get me wrong, but it seems like they tried to make Americana part 2. As much as I love Americana, I don't want a band to repeat themselves.

Aw, come on, man, Americana's got some of their best punk songs: No Brakes, Have You Ever, Staring at the Sun, Americana, End of the Line!

This list is how I feel at the moment.

1. Smash
2. Days Go By
3. Conspiracy Of One
4. Americana
5. Ixnay On The Hombre
6. Ignition
7. The Offspring
8. Splinter
9. Rise And Fall,Rage And Grace

Hard to make ranking-lists. All of them could be number one. It took me much time to make that one.
"Smash" has the best sound. You can even hear Dex's breath on it.That's why I put it as #1.
"Conspiracy of one" is the first Offspring album I bought and is special for me (It was 2nd on my list so far). The 2nd position is stolen by "Days go by" although it comes from my first enthusiasm. In a few months I 'll know if it remains the same. The positions 6-9 are not standard and the order might be changed anytime.

I'll give this is a shot as well:

1. Americana - it has many memorable songs, and it was my first album! Still love it.
2. Smash - pure classic, no weak songs.
3. Ignition - pure classic too, especially like the last 2 songs.
4. Ixnay - I Choose!
5. S/t - I'll be waiting :)
6. Rafrag - the first 6 songs or so are extremely good, but the rest doesn't quite make up for it
7. Days go by - few good songs
8. Splinter - hasn't got much for me besides Race against myself.
9. CO1 - this album hasn't got a single memorable song, maybe All along.

Ba! I am having a hard time ranking them. I tried scoring the songs on each album, but could not figure out a fair enough system. The only real distinction I can make is great and good album. The great ones are Ignition, Smash, Ixnay on the Hombre and Americana. The rest are good. Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace might be between those classes.

I shuffled the top four and the last four albums and this is what I got.


Ixnay on the Hombre
Ignition
Americana
Smash
Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace
The Offspring
Days Go By
Conspiracy of One
